Questions and answers about adoption:
Who selects the adoptive parents?
Birth mothers can review the approved families eligible to adopt (Click here). Birth parents select the adoptive parents from the couples who have an approved adoption home study with Catholic Charities. The birth parents determine if they want to have an open, semi-open or closed/confidential adoption and are matched with adoptive families with the same desire.
What if I have not applied for medical care and have no insurance?
We can help. We have prenatal care on campus and we can assist with the Medicaid application. Deliveries through the Catholic Charities Pregnancy Services occur at Saint Francis Health System or OSU Medical Center.
